As an integrative therapist, I offer my clients an opportunity to identify and explore their emotions and difficulties. I take the time to listen a person with acceptance and genuine interest. The goal is to help the client to understand their difficulties and how they affect them in everyday life. Together we can explore their situation in a way that leads to new perspectives and self-understanding. Therapy can help to get in touch with authentic self and support in discovering solutions and positive choices.
I draw on different techniques and theories to develop an approach that suits the needs of each client. I use talking therapy as well as suitable arts materials or whatever a client finds helpful to identify, express and resolve their difficulties and build greater emotional stability, strength and resilience.
I am a child, adolescent and young adult Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I am an accredited member of the UKCP and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My therapeutic practice is informed by the Postgraduate Diploma in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge and is supported by regular clinical supervision with experienced psychotherapists. I have a PhD in theology and have previously worked as an associate lecturer and a writer.
I have extensive experience of working with children, young people and adults who are dealing with a range of psychological and emotional difficulties in Cambridge and abroad.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
